Anonymous Rubio Staffer Calls Sean Hannity a "P*ssy"

Apparently over Hannity getting "offended" (in their telling) about Rubio giving Trump some of his own back.

Yeah I don't get this either, to be honest.

I'd love to take a position against Mario Romo here, but if Hannity really is playing the "How dare you" card on Mario's insults about Trump, then Hannity is... well, then Hannity is what Hannity is, I guess.

I hope I'm not being seen as being excessively anti-Trump when I say, if there's one guy who's invited cheap insults, it's Donald Trump.

Hey, in a podcast a few weeks back, I said something like, "Boy I sure hope that Mario doesn't win, because if he does, the people in love with him are really going to give it to me, and let's face it, I've got it coming."

Because I've dropped a lot of insults myself.

I don't get this level of hackery. It's embarrassing.

How can people be so hostile to things that are obviously true?

Now all of that assumes that these Romo people are being honest when they claim Hannity "got all offended."

Which is a dangerous assumption to make. Because these guys don't even have a nodding acquaintance with the truth themselves.

Maybe They're Dissembling Yet Again: Jim_B says this:

I listened to Hannity talk about Rubio. He wasn't "offended." He was saying that Rubio acting like an attack dog isn't who Rubio is. And that's true: it's a 180-degree turnaround from being Mr. Uniter-of-the-Party-Above-That-Lowly-Trump guy. He essentially said that it comes off as [disingenuous] (which it does) and eliminates the "adult in the room" argument as to voting for Rubio over Trump. If both guys are wallowing in the mud, why not vote for the better wrestler rather than the guy who has clearly been told by his handlers that he should start wrestling this week.

Sounds like a butthurt Rubio supporter on Hannity's staff whining to me....

Well that's a lot different from claiming that Hannity was "offended" by it.

In fact, that's a very conventional wisdom claim -- I've heard that six thousand ties from other talking heads, who all seem to repeat each other's conventional wisdom lines.

If that's what's being objected to here, then I can take a position against Mario Romo on this.

And then life is good.
